I am a learner, an educator, and a parent. Education, in all its forms, is something I greatly value. Rather than refer to myself as a lifetime learner, I prefer to say that learning is my way of life. Everyday is spent in a pursuit to further my understanding of the world around me, while paying particular attention to how our individual experiences of life are impacted by our social contexts.
While I place an emphasis on my academic work, I also enjoy learning trivial facts, picking up odd skills, and sharing bad jokes or puns. In fact, I can tell you the one word that rhymes with "orange," sing the alphabet backwards, and I would share my joke about amnesia - but I can't remember it.
In my spare time, I collect quirky little pop culture gems!
